If you tend to avoid veggies, run for your life.

Or, maybe I can change your mind.

This week, “Redhead’s Kitchen” is all about

“Green Veggies”.

Look out Kermit…

the spotlight is on you asparagus, peas, and brussels sprouts.

I personally love most vegetables, I don’t care if they are green or purple.

It wasn’t always that way though.

It wasn’t until I got older that I began to appreciate a dish my Grandmother made often.

julie baby nanoIt’s called “Creamed of Asparagus on Toast”.

Have you heard of it?

I’m going to assume the recipe developed out of necessity.

“Using what you have” and “saving $” all very important back in the day,

and still today.

There’s no meat in this, we always have flour/bread, and eggs are a staple.

The only ingredient you may have to find is asparagus.

My husband had never tried “Creamed of Asparagus on Toast” until I made it for him.

It’s now one of his favorites and describes it as “pure comfort food”.

The creamy, nutty, salty flavor combined with the rustic texture is killer.

I hope you go out of your comfort zone and try it.

    1. I think your asparagus toast looks lovely. I may try it with a poached egg on top instead of using hard boiled eggs. Thanks for the Meatless Monday recipe.
